Re: embroidering on a sportswear shirt

Cheryl Alm

I use a fusible no show mesh on back of shirt.  Hoop sticky stabilizer in hoop and "float" shirt rather than hooping so as to not get hoop burn on shirt.  Then use a water soluble topper and the baste function on the machine.  I have collected various garments of different fabrics from thrift shops to test designs before committing to my project garment.

I would like to embroider a school name on the front of a tshirt that is of the slicky ltwt knit sportswear fabric. Like you would wear to exercise class.

Any suggestions for stabilizers top/bottom/etc? I’ve never embroidered on this type fabric.

TIA! Joyce
